Definitions for "Memory leak"
Keywords:  leak, bug, deallocated, reboot, freed
A condition where a program continues to request more memory from an operating system, and doesn't tell the operating system when it is no longer using the memory.

A loss of usable storage space caused by the application's failure to correctly reclaim the memory occupied by the current KB's transient items.
Applications that require temporary memory request the memory from the operating sytem. When the application is done using the memory, it is supposed to tell the operating system so the operating system can use the memory for other applications.

an object in the heap to which no pointer exists
Making malloc calls without the corresponding calls to free. The result is that the amount of heap memory used continues to increase as the process runs.
an errant programmatic process that over time can gradually eat away at system resources
a common problem caused by poorly written or poorly debugged applications where they continually use more and more memory until you shut down the program, end the process manually or restart Microsoft Windows
